Philosophy through architecture.
The Badische Versicherungen head office in Karlsruhe is one of Germany’s most environmentally friendly office buildings. Energy consumption has been reduced and carbon emissions have been cut by 100 metric tons per year. The concrete skeleton is all that remains of the original building. The company has saved more than 15 million euros since the refurbishment, as two of the former
four buildings are now rented out. Communication zones, conference rooms and a restaurant complement the versatile space. An area of around 23,000 square meters provides workspace for 350 people and signals a new era.
“Today, our head office shines from within. Open office environments have replaced the small cubicles that we used to have. We align our products with the needs of our customers. The building is a perfect reflection of our philosophy.”
